On This Day In History . 17 August 1786 . Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, Duchess of Kent & Strathearn was born . She was a German princess & the mother of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. . About Victoria, part 2; . . Royal Feud; . ◼ The Duchess relied heavily on John Conroy, whom she engaged as her private secretary. Perhaps because of Conroy's influence, the relationship between the Duchess's household & king William IV soon soured. William was denied access to his young niece as much as the Duchess dared. She further offended the King by taking rooms in Kensington Palace that the King had reserved for himself. . ◼ Conroy had high hopes for his patroness & himself: he envisioned Victoria succeeding the throne at a young age, thus needing a regency government, which, following the Regency Act of 1831, would be headed by the Princess's mother (who had already served in that capacity in Germany following the death of her first husband). As the personal secretary of the Duchess, Conroy would be the veritable "power behind the throne". He did not count on Victoria's uncle, William IV, surviving long enough for Victoria to reach her majority. He had cultivated her mother as his ally, & ignored & insulted Victoria. Now he had no influence over her, & thus tried to force her to make him her personal secretary upon her accession. This plan, too, backfired, as Victoria came to associate her mother with Conroy's schemes, for pressuring her to sign a paper declaring Conroy her personal secretary. . ◼ When Victoria became queen, she relegated the Duchess to separate accommodations, away from her own. . . .

HAINT BLUE—protection: “The ceiling on the first floor of the Owens’ Thomas slave quarters features the largest example of “haint” blue painting known to exist in America. “Haint” blue paint was believed to have spiritual properties in many African cultures, such as the ability to ward off evil spirits. In nineteenth-century America, the paint-created by mixing indigo, lime, and buttermilk-was used on ceilings, around doors or windows, and even behind or under furnishings.” Savannah’s 1820 yellow fever epidemic wiped out about 660 people, but the lime in the paint may have kept mosquitos out of many homes (which spread the fever). The idea is to invoke the appearance of water surrounding entry points into the home, because according to Gullah culture, it is believed that spirits cannot cross water. This idea is alive and well in Savannah, Georgia to this very day. #gullahculture #gullahgeechee #gullah Slave Quarters | Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters, Savannah Georgia #1816 #owensthomas #slavequarters #savannah #georgia #slavetrade #urbanslavery #hainblue #transatlanticslavetrade #enslaved #housenegroes #streetphotography #history #cellar #bajanrum #telfairmuseums #iron #bottles #keys #americanhistory #roots #historic #family #reunion #backus #qhnpics

I was inspired by the rock I found earlier (previous post) to do a few posts on bygone Thompson Park pools, starting with the wading pool of the 19th and 20th century. . It was only 14 inches deep and provided relief during the hot summers and ice skating during the harsh winters to all Watertown citizens. . The wading pool was part of the original Olmsted design, but unfortunately it was filled in and a water tower constructed on top of it in 1978. . Today you can still see the outline of the wading pool as seen in the Google Earth photo. . #visitwatertownny #watertownny #watertownhistory #nny #northernny #northcountry #pools #wadingpool #olmsteaddesign #olmsteadparks #historicparks #historic #newyorkstatehistory #newyorkstate #oldpools

On This Day In History . 17 August 1786 . Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, Duchess of Kent & Strathearn was born . About Victoria, part 1; . ◼ She was a German princess & the mother of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. . ◼ She was born in Coburg on 17 August 1786 in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. She was the fourth daughter & seventh child of Franz Frederick Anton, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, & Countess Augusta of Reuss-Ebersdorf. . ◼ On 21 December 1803 at Coburg, she married (as his second wife) Emich Carl, 2nd Prince of Leiningen, whose first wife, Henrietta of Reuss-Ebersdorf, was her aunt. Charles & Victoria had two children: Carl, 3rd Prince of Leiningen & Princess Feodora of Leiningen . ◼ Through her first marriage, she is a direct matrilineal ancestor to various members of royalty in Europe, including Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, Felipe VI of Spain, & Constantine II of Greece. The Prince of Leiningen died in 1814. . ◼ Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn proposed to Victoria & she accepted. The couple were married on 29 May 1818 at Amorbach, & again, on 11 July 1818, at Kew, the second ceremony being a joint ceremony at which Edward's brother, the Duke of Clarence, later King William IV, also married his wife, Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meningen. Shortly after the marriage, the pair moved to Germany, where the cost of living would be cheaper. Soon after, Victoria became pregnant, & the Duke & Duchess, determined to have their child born in England, raced back, arriving at Dover on 23 April 1819, & moved into Kensington Palace, where she soon gave birth to a daughter, Victoria: . ◼ The Duke of Kent died suddenly of pneumonia in January 1820, six days before his father, King George III. .

Part 2 of my Key West trip. I’m a huge fan of good and interesting architecture. As our hotel concierge Terri told us - the whole Old Town part of Key West is the exact copy of New Orleans - and definitely it looked pretty similar and great. Of course I started this series of photos with Sloppy Joe’s bar, because that was the most favorite bar of Ernest Hemingway. And as a fellow alcoholic (😇😂) I’ve grabbed a drink there myself 🍻🥃🍹🍸🥂🍷🍾 . . . #architecture #building #buildings #masterpiece #masterpieces #oldtown #oldtownkeywest #historic #historical #sloppyjoes #ernesthemingway #hemingway #alcoholic #drink #drinks #alcohol #trip #travel #traveling #adventure #adventurer #part2 #parttwo #keywest #floridakeys #florida #fl #island

Painted grave stele of Hediste | from Dimitrias, Thessaly | Hellenistic period, 3rd-2nd c. BC | Athanasakio Archaeological Museum of Volos | Thessaly | Greece —— “The Fates unfolded sorrowful thread from their spindle for Hediste, when newly-wed faced the pains of childbirth. Miserable, because it was not to embrace her child neither to moisten her infant's lips with her breasts. As soon as the baby saw the light of the sun, the Fortune fell on these two, with cruelty, and drew them in one tomb, both mother and child.” ================== Γραπτή επιτύμβια στήλη της Ηδίστης | Δημητριάς, Θεσσαλία | Ελληνιστική εποχή, 3ος-2ος αι. π.Χ. “Λυπηρό νήμα ξετύλιξαν από τα αδράχτια τους οι Μοίρες για την Ηδίστη, όταν νεόνυμφη αντιμετώπισε τις ωδίνες του τοκετού. Δυστυχισµένη, διότι δεν επρόκειτο να αγκαλιάσει το παιδί της ούτε να ποτίσει τα χείλη του βρέφους με τους μαστούς της. Μόλις αυτό είδε το φως του ήλιου, η Τύχη επέπεσε με σκληρότητα σ' αυτούς τους δυο και έσυρε σε έναν τύµβο. µητέρα και παιδί.” ================== ......................................... - photo by archaeologist.gr - ......................................... . . . . . #ancient #ancienthistory #ancientgreece #paint #museum #ancientworld #painting #culture #archaeologist #archaeology #photooftheday #archeologia #archeology #landscape #art #arthistory #fineart #greece #ig_greece #architecture #history #explorer #explore #travelphotography #picoftheday #architecturephotography #monument #painter #travel #historic

Head of Artemis | found in Lykosoura | 190-180 BC | National Archaeological Museum | Athens | Greece —— “The goddess wears a wreath. The holes that can be seen at the ears and temples will have been used to attach metal jewellery. The eyes were inlaid. The torso and parts of the limbs of Artemis are kept in the Lykosoura Museum” ====================== Κεφαλή Αρτέμιδος. Η θεά φέρει στεφάνη.

One leg and a small part of the body from a tripod table of offerings | from the Minoan town of Palaikastro | 1500 BC | Archaeological Museum of Sitia | Crete | Greece —— Painted decoration depicting narcissus flowers covered the exterior. It is a characteristic example of the artistic skill of the Minoans who rendered their natural environment on wall paintings with great realism. ====================== Πόδι και μικρό τμήμα σώματος τράπεζας προσφορών που βρέθηκε στη μινωική πόλη του Παλαικάστρου.
